N.H. Expands Vaccine Eligibility To Residents 50 And Older


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The State of New Hampshire expanded its vaccine eligibility categories on Monday.

Anyone age 50 and older can now get a COVID-19 shot in New Hampshire. This latest expansion makes another 200,000 people eligible for the vaccine in the state.

The state opened up eligibility for teachers and school staff 10 days ago on March 12.

New Hampshire has not yet published an official date for all adults in the state to become eligible for a shot.

The state's new vaccine distribution website, "Vaccine & Immunization Network Interface," launched on March 17, and has its first substantial test Monday, as the state expanded eligibility.

Some social media users reported the site was experiencing technical difficulties early Monday morning. The issues had cleared up by the early afternoon.
